    Those are right for the size boat and load you have on trailer. 35 is what you need to run.

    Don't want to hear that, lol. Haven't used them much yet, and the only reason I bought them was because they were the only 8 ply, class D tire I could find. I hope I have better luck with mine, lol.

    I the biggest killer of trailer tires is axle alignment. I know that mine will creep 1/4 - 1/2" from hitting holes in boat ramps, potholes, and all of the other stuff that trailers hit going down the road. For many trailers, you can align in the driveway by removing the tires, jacking up the trailer, loosening U bolts and lining up the difference between the hub spindle to the hitch. It doesn't take too long and will definitely make a difference minimizing tire wear. I have found that very few shops will align a trailer and I don't know what is involved with fancier or newer rigs.

    This is the culprit on most trailers with excessive tire wear. Bent axles are a major cause also. With good axles and alignment, you should get many years of heavy use from a set of radial TRAILER tires. D or E rated tires only on a trailer. C or below car tires won’t do as well.

    I noticed yesterday that on one side of my single axle the tire is wearing a little more on the inside of the tire than it is across the whole tread. Not much, but a little, indicating to me that that the axle may be bent up a little. I wondered who or where I could accurately get that checked out and or straightened?

    Lots of good information here...My Skeeter uses an odd wheel/radial tire size that is hard to locate.Last few sets bought from an outfit called etrailer. They have a huge selection of every size known to man and ship at reasonable cost....Might take a look

    I was going through tires every three years until I upgraded to a 3500 lb axle vs the 1500 that came on the Bear trailer. Cost about $120 and shipped to my house. Took about an hour to install. 1652 G3 side console.
